I'm not kidding.
As I write this, I am furiously thinking of ways to help Walmart go out of business. It's been about six weeks since I've blogged anything, but I'm so pissed at Walmart that I feel this merits a blog.
That seems to be logical. I mean, If the company will not sell items to willing buyers, what is the purpose of doing business?
Now, I realize that there's no law against businesses refusing a transaction with anyone. But it's just plain stupid to turn down money.
Today I needed a few items including a paper shredder, a pet carrier, and a few other items for our new kitten.
To start off, I'm not a huge fan of Walmart. There's the past allegations of using child and sweatshop labor, mistreating and underpaying workers, and the giant helping close long-time mom and pop shops.
However, the prices are low. The stores in general suck ass. Many of the employees don't understand basic English, aisles are crowded, other customers have screaming children, and it takes forever to find what you need. Target is such a better store!
I decided to brave it anyways to look particularly for the pet carrier and the paper shredder.
So I went to Walmart.
After searching around for a half hour, I found what I needed including the carrier. I found the one below, but it seemed to be the only one in the pet aisle and was out of the box. It was near a spot with a price around $30. I was definitely willing to pay that, despite the fact that I would have preferred a model in the box and fresh.
